Trump donates first-quarter salary to VA
President Trump donated his first-quarter salary Thursday to the Department of Veterans Affairs, which is still operating without a permanent leader since he fired David Shulkin in late March.
Acting VA Secretary Robert Wilkie accepted the gift from the president and said he would apply the money to the VA’s caregiver programs.
“President Trump understands the critical role of caregivers in meeting the essential needs of veterans,” Mr. Wilkie said.
He also called on the Senate to approve House-passed legislation to overhaul VA programs and fund the depleted Veterans Choice program, which provides veterans with private health-care options.
